Farmington's girls tennis team remained winless, but came away with some positives after three straight losses last week.

The Tigers played some of their most competitive singles tennis of the season in Friday's 7-0 loss at Northfield, and the team's doubles play was in good form during home losses to Holy Angels and Minnehaha Academy last Monday and Tuesday.

Friday's match featured a three-setter from Meghan Lindstrom at No. 2 singles. Lindstrom won 6-3 before falling 3-6 and 1-6. Melanie Kappes also contributed what coach Jack Olwell called "her best match of the season" in a 2-6, 6-2, 0-6 loss.

In Tuesday's 7-0 loss to the Stars, it was Megan Stivers who played her best match of the year, according to Olwell. Stivers came back from a 1-6 loss to stay within 5-7 in a second-set loss.

The team of Lucy Gentilini and Rachel Molitor added a 6-7, 2-6 effort at No. 3 doubles.

The Tigers picked up two doubles matches during last Monday's 5-2 home loss to Minnehaha Academy.

Emilee Shearer and Brianne Kashak teamed up to score a hard-fought 7-5, 6-4 victory at No. 3 doubles. Molitor and Jessica Autey added a dominating 6-0, 6-2 finish at No. 4 doubles.

The Tigers close out the regular season this week with a Tuesday home meet against Chaska and a Thursday trip to take on New Prague.
